Department of Electrical Engineering

The Department of Electrical Engineering (EE) was founded in 1931 under the name of Taiwan Technical College Electrical Division. After several minor organizational changes, the department was finally named as the Department of Electrical Engineering of National Cheng Kung University in 1956. The Department comprises of three institutes, namely the Institute of Electrical Engineering, the Institute of Microelectronics, the Institute of Computer and Communication Engineering, and one Program, namely Nano-Integrated Circuit Engineering Program including Master’s Program and Doctoral Program. There are between 1,800 and 1,900 graduates each year from the Department. The Department is committed to building long-term R&D relationships with industry and academia, both in Taiwan and abroad, in order to support continued development in the fields. 

In the nighty years since its founding, the Department has built an enviable reputation as a center of excellence for teaching and research in the Electrical Engineering field. With a history of outstanding achievement in the academic and industrial sectors, and a strategy of continuous investment in cutting-edge research in the Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering fields, the Department is committed to becoming the institutional choice for leading academics, researchers and students not only from Taiwan, but also from all over the world.

NCKU EE Research Areas


The teaching and research activities of the department are divided into nine areas: Micro-electronics, Electronic Material, Control, Power, VLSI/CAD, Instrument System and Chip, Computer Science and Information Engineering, Communication Network, and Nano-Integrated Circuit Engineering. Apart from focusing on the development of these professional fields, with the trend of electrical engineering and information science, the department also strengthens multi-disciplinary areas and the integration of hardware and software as well as system optimization.

Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering

The Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering (CSIE) at National Cheng Kung University is the first high-ranking academic institute in Southern Taiwan. The department began its operation with the establishment of Master’s Degree Program in 1987, followed by its Doctoral Program in 1992. The Undergraduate Program was inaugurated in 1997. The Institute of Medical Informatics was founded in 2006. In 2011, the Institute of Manufacturing Information and Systems was integrated into the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineerning. In 2019, the Graduate Program of Artificial Intelligence was established. For a long time, the department has been engaged in the research and development of state-of-the-art technologies of Computer Science. The teachers and students have also published a great deal of papers in international journals as well as obtaining many awards and honors in academic performance and tournaments. Moreover, the teachers and students have applied a number of patents and constructed a strong cooperation with the industries.
